Dan Crenshaw is a newbie to Congress, but he’s quickly established himself as a rising star.
The former Navy SEAL, who lost an eye serving our country, won re-election this year. And even though in his second term, he’s gotten sick of the D.C. political games.
He’s especially outraged over how Nancy Pelosi toys with Americans’ livelihoods on a daily basis.
So, he just took her to task. From Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) gave an impassioned speech condemning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for what he described as her “deeply partisan” decision to stall relief for the American people until after the recent presidential election. The Texas Republican also scorched Democrat leaders who have imposed lockdowns killing small businesses.
Here’s more of what he said:
Speaker Pelosi made a simple calculation; she bet that if she could keep Congress from reaching a deal on COVID relief, that would hurt President Trump and Republicans and give her more power. Even when members of her own party asked her to bring common-sense, stand-alone, bi-partisan measures to the House floor that would easily become law, she refused. She would say over and over again that nothing is better than something.
When so few members of the House are willing to confront the Speaker (aside from Kevin McCarthy and a few others), Dan Crenshaw fired with both barrels.
He blamed her for delaying additional COVID relief efforts until after the election. Many have said she did this to deny Trump another win right before people went to the polls.
Crenshaw skewered the Speaker for claiming “nothing is better than something.” That’s because he says, she’d rather see Americans suffer than work with Republicans.
Even at the very start of COVID, Pelosi and her party seemed to be the ones slowing progress. After the first round of relief was passed, it was Pelosi who refused to quickly replenish the PPP.
When it ran dry, she dragged out negotiations even more with her outlandish left-wing demands.
Over the summer, when experts predicted the virus would return in the fall, she refused to work with lawmakers again.
What does this woman get paid for—to not pass legislation?
Crenshaw was right to criticize Pelosi. She claims she is in D.C. fighting for Americans. But even CNN’s Wolf Blitzer slammed her over her people “starving in the streets.”
Never thought I’d see the day when Crenshaw and Blitzer had something in common. But it’s all thanks to Pelosi’s shocking lack of leadership.
Should Nancy Pelosi be our nation’s Speaker of the House?
- Dan Crenshaw slammed Nancy Pelosi in a recent speech.
- He accused the woman of neglecting Americans over politics.
- Pelosi refused to negotiate for COVID relief before the election.
